Gobhi or Cauliflower is the most versatile vegetable after potatoes and found in almost all across the globe. In winters it is available in abundance in India. One gets tired of eating Aloo Gobhi or Cauliflower cooked with Potatoes so a variation is always welcome. Few days back I had posted recipe of Gobhi Manchurian. which is an indo-chinese way of cooking this nutritious vegetable. The interesting thing to note is that not only the cauliflower florets are used in cooking but the central stem holding the florets also makes such an amazing dish. My mother makes it and its absolutely delightful.Its one of my favourite dishes and I insist that you must try it in thick winters. Its also known as Vegetarians meat.

You have to reserve and collect the stems or danthals when you cook cauliflower. The softer the stems the better the dish tastes. You can keep the danthals or stems in the fridge for two weeks and cook once you have enough danthals to get started. The other option is you can ask your local vegetable vendor to give you the stems. They will be happy to give away to you.

Directions:

1. You need atleast two full pods of Garlic for this. Peel the skin and keep the garlic cloves aside.
